Handsome REWARD for blue-squared questions mark!!

<wild west theme>

Howdy folks,

As the Sheriff of Jonville, I’d like to infrom our citizens and guests that there have been sightings of the dreaded blue-squared question mark. We have used our ingenious resources and hard-working team to create this accurate rendition in the WANTED poster.

There is no need to panic. I report, DO NOT PANIC.

Now, these marks have only been noted by those who use the Safari Browser, and can be hard to catch (a quick refresh usually removes them), but they are nonetheless scary & lethal.

Citizens, keep your distance!

However, to best rid our fair town of these marks, we would ask all citizens and guests to report any sightings immediately, by taking screenshots and noting which posts they are reading and browser they are using.

Thank you.

Translation: I would really appreciate any help to see if any of my viewers (yes all 10 of them) are getting these blue-squared question marks? I wrote about them in this post.

You can imagine it’s a little ironic (& equally embarrassing) since I’m writing about other companies who don’t pay attention to how their website looks. Touché.


– Jon


Jon Chui (pronounced "chew") has been building iOS/Android apps for the last 7 years, the last 3 working on Google Maps, Inbox by Gmail and Google's Search App. Though he grew up in a Christian family and to parents who would end up giving up their 25 years of hard-earned comforts/affluence in Canada to go back to China as missionaries when he was 14, being a Christian was always in his head, and he would constantly struggle with trying to unify the sacred and the secular - until last year. However, through a radical transformation[] @ work last year (which he can't take ANY credit for), he & his wife & 2 young boys have decided to leave Google, sell/donate everything they have so to serve the poor & marginalized with Jesus’ love as missionaries with's Family DTS in Kona, hawaii then to the Philippines. Read more about their family journey @, and reach out to him @ If you're a recruiter with freelance jobs or have tech projects for jon feel free to reach out to him -

  1. for some reason, I tend to get the question mark because of a slow internet connection, but after I fix the connection problem, they’re no longer there? could that be why?
